Knight on Bulls Offense

Recommended Posts

I found it interesting:

...." the veer-and-shoot differs from other spread schemes in that it's essentially an option offense with a vertical component. A power -- but not necessarily ball-control -- run game lulls defenses to the box, creating mismatches out wide. 

And if linebackers get sucked into trying to stop the run, well, tight ends can find themselves quarantined.

Moreover, Gilbert is a proponent of having his players execute without thinking, a process he has termed "mind-muscle memory." Such a philosophy, of course, doesn't lend itself to a thick playbook.

Which might explain why the Bulls have no playbook. Quarterbacks have said Gilbert diagrams a play, and they copy it down themselves."

These type of offense schemes can go either way, be more run dominant or more pass dominant. 

 

Kevin Sumlin uses a very simple playbook, multiple routes, options from same play call depending on the defense. Worked for him at Houston okay at Texas A&M. Apparently simple for offensive players to grasp quickly but hard to defend.

Just means that runs up the middle are part of the offense

If I recall, last time we were power based it took our team coming to the coach asking to let our QB loose. Also, reference Mike White. See how well he did at USF?  

 

With that being said, I don't think much can hold Q back.

Crazy to see how much weight our O-Line has put on. Remember when the average was like 295 a few years ago - probably why the pro style didn't work for Tags. Good to see that 310-320 range up front though. Definitely going to be one of our strengths this season.

I thought we proved last season Gulf Coast Offense > Art Briles style offense when we smacked around Syracuse.
